Marilyn Coleman is a former professional truck driver. She started out as an administrative assistant but felt like something was missing. She followed her dreams of becoming a professional truck driver and became a owner operator. After talking with her father, who drove for 25 years himself, she took the step and has been driving for 17 years.

During her long career as a truck driver, Marilyn traveled all over the U.S., met some interesting people, visited some interesting places and learned a lot about the industry. As an owner/operator, she ran a small business with just one truck. She learned how to dispatch and deal with brokers, shippers, receivers and other drivers. She no longer drives but still keeps up with changes in rules and regulations in the trucking industry so she can inform her friends about those changes.
